Eighty chickpea genotypes form diverse sources were studied for eighteen traits including seed yield per plant. The correlation study revealed that primary branches per plant expressed the highest significant positive relationship with seed yield per plant followed by biological yield per plant, pods per plant, 100-seed weight, plant height, canopy spread, seeds per plant, secondary branches per plant and harvest index. Biological yield per plant had the highest positive direct effect on seed yield per plant followed by harvest index, pods per plant, 100-seed weight and seeds per pod.
